Alan Cumming says that he’s grown weary of discussing his sexuality.

Talking to the Independent about how he wrote his memoir Not My Father’s Son, he says:

“Some people have said about the book: ‘He doesn’t mention that he was first married to a woman and then married to a man’. But that’s not what this book is about… it’s not about me being bisexual.”

“I get a little tired of everything. If I was straight, you wouldn’t think that I should make references to the fact that I was straight, so it just feels a little bit double standard-y.”

“The whole bisexual thing keeps coming up, and I just think that, eventually, hopefully, we’ll all live in a world where we don’t talk about it as much and just get on with it.”

The star of The Good Wife was married to actress Hilary Lyon from 1985 to 1993 before tying the knot with artist Grant Shaffer in 2007.
